If people are constantly asking you why you look so tired, then maybe it's time to get rid of the puffy dark circles under your eyes.
Eye puffiness, eye bags, and dark circles have many causes: a cold, a sinus infection, seasonal allergies, sleep deprivation... or the fact that you spent the night prior sobbing uncontrollably while watching a tearjerker on the Hallmark channel.
The most common treatment for this unattractive ailment involves placing cold cucumber slices on your closed eyelids for 10-15 minutes. You can also use something similarly cold such as cold potato slices, chilled tea bags, cold metal spoons, or a bag of frozen peas wrapped in a towel.
For a more aromatic and indulgent self-spa treatment, you can also use crushed mint leaves, almond oil, or a cotton ball soaked in rose water to help reduce eye puffiness.
However, if the dark circles under your eyes persist, you may want to consider seeing a doctor to ensure that the blemishes aren't indicative of a more serious problem.
And if none of these remedies worked for you, definitely check out my followup list for more home remedies for treating dark circles under your eyes.
